Enhancing industrial gas detection efficiency in a cost-effective way

Jan 18 2024

Teledyne Gas & Flame Detection’s iTrans 2 fixed gas detector has emerged as a leading solution for demanding industrial applications, delivering a combination of versatility, high performance, and cost-effectiveness. At the heart of this gas detector is an intelligent electronics platform with smart sensor capabilities. Teledyne’s innovative design allows for the detection of one or two points from a single head, thus maximising flexibility. The readings from these points are conveniently displayed on the standard-issue LED and display, offering users immediate access to crucial data.

One of the standout features of the iTrans 2 is its compatibility with multiple sensors, including infrared, catalytic bead, and electrochemical sensors for detecting explosive, toxic, or asphyxiant gases, as well as oxygen. The iTrans 2 can be configured with a 0-100% volume methane infrared sensor for biogas applications and CO2 infrared sensors covering a range from 0.5% to 100% volume. These sensors are delivered pre-calibrated using smart technology, facilitating automatic sensor recognition and data transfer. Post-calibration, the instrument displays sensor life data automatically, to ensure ongoing reliability.

Installation of the iTrans 2 is quick, easy and efficient, with both cable-saving and time-saving benefits. This is made possible through common configurations such as the 3-wire (4-20mA) and 4-wire (digital ModBus) models, catering to a wide range of applications. Both configurations allow for the full use of the device’s features and options, seamlessly integrating with all iTrans 2 sensors.

User convenience is further enhanced through the iTrans 2's analogue 4-20mA and digital RS-485 Modbus (9600 baud) outputs. Additionally, the optional integration of the HART communication protocol facilitates remote communication across the 4-20mA signal, supporting diagnostics, commissioning, and calibration. Another user-friendly feature is the inclusion of a simple magnetic wand, enabling complete transmitter configuration and calibration without the need to open the explosion-proof housing.

The Teledyne iTrans 2 fixed gas detector offers a comprehensive solution for enhancing gas detection efficiency. With its intelligent design, compatibility with a wide variety of sensors, and user-friendly features, the iTrans 2 stands as a reliable choice for ensuring the safety and well-being of individuals and assets across a multitude of industrial settings.
